Mika Singh and Sanjay Gupta lashed out at Bollywood stars for not speaking in favour of Shah Rukh Khan in son Aryan’s case. The filmmaker posted, “Shah Rukh Khan has and continues to give jobs and livelihoods to thousands in the film industry. He has always stood up for every cause for the industry. The astute silence of the industry in his moment of crisis is nothing short of shameful.” The singer replied, ‘You are right, they are watching the drama and cannot say even a single word. I’m with SRK. Aryan should get bail.” Among the leading stars, Hrithik Roshan was the first to openly support Aryan. Hansal Mehta, Rahul Dholakia, Sussanne Khan, Raveena Tandon Thadani, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, Pooja Bhatt, Ali Fazal, Vishal Dadlani, Shekhar Suman and Raj Babbar have also expressed solidarity with SRK.
